A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about employee commuting:

The Department of Parking and Transportation has partnered with the University's Center for Survey Research to conduct an employee mode split survey every two years. The most recent survey data collection period was April 2014 to May 2014. The 2014 survey had a 56% response rate with a margin of error at +/- 4.3%. The survey also collects additional information that the Department can use to guide outreach efforts and infrastructure improvements.
